Eleven polymorphic microsatellite loci were obtained from Hoplodactylus duvaucelii using highthroughput genomic sequencing technology. Loci isolated from H. duvaucelii showed extensive cross-amplification for H. maculatus, resulting in six polymorphic loci for H. duvaucelii and 10 for H. maculatus. Genetic diversity was assessed in 34 individuals of H. duvaucelii from Korapuki Island, and 20 individuals of H. maculatus from Kapiti Island.
